  • Phase in Opticsby Vlasta Peoinova; Antonin Luk; Jan Perina

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 82.00

    This book is devoted to the classical and quantum phases in wave and particle optics from the viewpoint of both theory and applications. Wave and beam light optics are reviewed in considerable detail, featuring optical imaging and holography in linear optics and phase conjugation methods in nonlinear optics. Photon optics is embodied here as quantum... more...

  • Technische Mechanik Methodische Einführungby Heinz Neuber

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 39.72

    Der vorliegende zweite Tell behandelt die Statik der deformierbaren Korper und damit zugleich die Grundlagen der Festigkeitslehre. Der Inhalt entspricht im wesentlichen der Mechanikvorlesung fiir die Stu­ dierenden des zweiten Semesters an den Technischen Universitaten. Wie beim ersten Teil war das didaktische Ziel eine systematische und klar verstandliche... more...

  • Mechanics of Continua and Wave Dynamicsby L. Brekhovskikh; V. Goncharov

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 76.94

    This text is based on lectures given by the authors to students of the Physico­ Technical Institute in Moscow in the course of many years. Teaching mechan­ ics of continuous media to students in physics has some specific features. Un­ fortunately, the students rarely have enough time for this branch of science. Over a comparatively short period of... more...

  • Selected Topics in Nonlinear Wave Mechanicsby C.I. Christov; Arde Guran

    Birkhäuser Boston 2012; US$ 108.72

    This book gives an overview ofthe current state of nonlinear wave mechanics with emphasis on strong discontinuities (shock waves) and localized self­ preserving shapes (solitons) in both elastic and fluid media. The exposition is intentionallyat a detailed mathematical and physical level, our expectation being that the reader will enjoy coming to grips... more...

  • Theoretical Physics at the End of the Twentieth Centuryby Yvan Saint-Aubin; Luc Vinet

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 285.65

    The Centre de recherches matMmatiques (CRM) was created in 1968 by the Universite de Montreal to promote research in the mathematical sciences. It is now a national institute that hosts several groups and holds special theme years, summer schools, workshops, and a postdoctoral program. The focus of its scientific activities ranges from pure to applied... more...

  • Toward a New Millennium in Galaxy Morphologyby David L. Block; Ivânio Puerari; Alan Stockton; DeWet Ferreira

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 306.69

    South Africa - a land of paradigm shifts. A land where we are willing to leave behind the old, to bravely accept the new. What do we need to exit the dark ages in the morphology of galaxies? How prevalent is the cherishing of old concepts? Traditional morphology has been `mask-oriented', focusing on masks of dust and gas which may constitute only... more...

  • Topology Design of Structuresby Martin P. Bendsøe; Carlos A. Mota Soares

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 350.66

    Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop, Sesimbra, Portugal, June 20-26, 1992 more...

  • A Course in Elasticityby B. M. Fraeijs de Veubeke; F. A. Ficken; D. A. Simons

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 93.43

    This book is based on lecture notes of the late Professor de Veubeke. The subject is presented at a level suitable for graduate students in engineering, physics, or mathematics. Some exposure to linear algebra, complex analysis, variational calculus, or basic continuum mechanics would be helpful. The first third of the book contains the fundamentals... more...

  • Stability of Fluid Motions Iby D. D. Joseph

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 87.93

    The study of stability aims at understanding the abrupt changes which are observed in fluid motions as the external parameters are varied. It is a demanding study, far from full grown"whose most interesting conclusions are recent. I have written a detailed account of those parts of the recent theory which I regard as established. Acknowledgements I... more...

  • Inequalities in Mechanics and Physicsby G. Duvant; C. W. John; J. L. Lions

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 93.43

    1. We begin by giving a simple example of a partial differential inequality that occurs in an elementary physics problem. We consider a fluid with pressure u(x, t) at the point x at the instant t that 3 occupies a region Q oflR bounded by a membrane r of negligible thickness that, however, is semi-permeable, i. e., a membrane that permits the fluid... more...
